Microsoft and Qualcomm will be partnering at this year's CES 2022 conference, to manufacture and customize robust chips for future AR glasses

Microsoft launched its most anticipated HoloLens 2 AR headset years ago, which primarily uses Qualcomm chips. The tech giant is aiming to launch the most advanced AR glasses soon. Microsoft and Qualcomm, in a recent press meet, have announced that both the companies will once again be partnering at this year's CES 2022 conference to manufacture and customize robust chips for future AR glasses.

Microsoft's AR glasses and other products will use custom chips with a proper blend of reality software with Qualcomm's phone-based AR platforms. Qualcomm has stated that it is currently working on a software platform meant for phones known as Snapdragon Spaces. This will bridge the gap between AR glasses and Android phones.

Microsoft has announced that all its future AR glasses will be consisting of additional powers along with Qualcomm's planned lineup of products. This partnership will form a common connecting thread between future AR products and other wireless devices. Both the companies will be using the most advanced "metaverse strategy," which is currently being used everywhere
